Made for the big screen

MELVILLE – Resident of Melville and actor David Louw tells us what he has been up to

The year 2019 has been a successful one for actor David Louw and this Melville resident is not slowing down, as he juggles many exciting projects.

You may recognise him from the TV series, Villa Rosa – his TV debut – as well as 7de Laan and Hillside as well as on the big screen in Modder en Bloed, Wolwedans in die Skemer, Rowwe Diamante and short film Vuilwasgoed. His latest role sees Louw playing the charming character, Simon Greeff, on popular soapie, Getroud Met Rugby – a role that allows him to show off his diversity and skill as an actor.

“I tell stories for a living. One part of my day, I live in a make-believe world where I play different characters, entertaining people from all over the country. I help them escape to a world where, just for a short while, you don’t have to face your own problems. Acting doesn’t only make me happy, it makes me content,” Louw said.

He is also in the midst of writing and producing a project – but we’ll have to wait until next year to find out more about it. Why so? Louw explained, “Like the legendary business magnate, Warren Buffett said, ‘never reveal your next move. Just do it’.” We’ll watch this space.

If his acting and top-secret project doesn’t keep him busy enough, Louw has also launched a clothing label called INGU – which stands for ‘I’ll Never Give Up’. It aims to provide durable and comfortable clothing for stylish men. “I don’t sell clothes. I sell a message. INGU is more than just a clothing brand. It is something to help you start believing in yourself again.”

When this bachelor manages to take a moment in his busy schedule to unwind, you’ll probably spot him walking his dog, Logan, at the Emmarentia Dog Park, and his ideal Sunday afternoon is when he kicks back and watches Formula 1.
